Scholastic and German Book Fair

The book fair runs in the library Friday, November 13th (after school) to Friday, November 20th. All profits go directly to purchase books for the school library and to fund classroom libraries. There are many ways you can show your support of the book fair; buy a well-priced book for your child, get some of your holiday shopping done in a jiffy, buy a book from a teacher’s “wish list” or save time and simply visit the online book fair. We will also have German books available to purchase.

German books are not-for-profit and are generously purchased by Friends of AEA. They are made available for parents to support their students' German language acquisition and enrichment. German books are first come, first served. Absolutely no holds. Cash or check only.

MS Gently Used Uniform Sale

Middle School Community – Mark your calendars! Our next gently used uniform sale will be January 27 and 28, 2016 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. during the MS art and design showcase nights. All uniform pieces will be $2. This event is cash only. Please continue to drop any unwanted uniforms at the school, so we can get them to a student who can use them. Questions? Contact Amy.

Support essential enrichment programs at AEA

Please help support essential programs at AEA through a donation to Friends of Albert Einstein Academies. Our goal is to have 200 families participate in this donation drive. Donating to FoAEA supports the enrichment programs that our kids benefit from including art, music, PE and science programs and provides funds for field trips, assemblies, and classroom supplies.

If you haven't signed up yet, please take 5 minutes to contribute to AEA's enrichment programs. Go to our donation website from your mobile device or computer and select a monthly donation amount or a one time donation. Choose $30/month ($1/day) or any amount affordable to you. Even $5 or $10 per month makes a huge difference for the kids.

Matching Grants

Last year, the following companies made matching grants to FoAEA: Union Bank, Qualcomm, Pfizer, Intuit, Genentech, Covidien, Nokia, and ARS National Svcs.

We thank all of these companies for their generous support. If you work for any of these companies and have not yet taken advantage of their matching grant program, it just takes a few minutes and is free money to the school. One way of finding out if your employeer supports matching grants is to look at this list of companies. Information normally needed to have an employeer make a matching grant is available here.
